Client mode Commerce and MQ connect using TCP/IP.

Required when Commerce is installed on one machine and MQ is installed on a separate machine.

To use this mode, the MQ client needs to be installed on the WebSphere Commerce machine.

The use of the message engine or WAS v5 default messaging is not supported by the WebSphere Commerce adapter for MQ.
